Super, Duper Mario Party

One of the parties that I am working on for October is a 7 year old's Super Mario themed party. I am super excited about this theme because I was a hard-core Mario 3 addict back in the day. That is, back when I was in elementary school. And of course, my husband is a big help with this theme too.
Here is the inspiration board that I worked up for the client a few weeks ago.

Last week, I showed you the PVC dessert stands that I was working on and now, here are a couple of others little things that I have up my sleeve.
Custom letters for the dessert table in our primary color theme:
And DIY glass blocks made into the famous question blocks from the game.
These were super easy to make. I bought $9.99 glass block at Hobby Lobby (50% off, I LOVE that place!) and then taped off my question marks with blue painters' tape. I used high gloss yellow Rustoleum to paint them yellow and've got yourself some question blocks!


  1. I love the yellow blocks! Are those the same used in bathrooms in divider walls, meaning you can to find at home improvement places? No Hobby Lobby out here...

    And if you check out my Wii Arcade Party, we made Fimo clay Mushroom Magnets if you are looking for another activity. They made them at the party, then we sent home baking directions, including the small magnet to add.

  2. I love this inspiration board! My 8 year old just informed me that he wants a Mario party in January, so I will be peeking at yours!
